What is the Next Generation NCLEX® Project?
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is considering revisions to the focus, item types, and content of the NCLEX-RN® in the years ahead. What to know now:
NCSBN has embarked on a multi-year research project to explore new item types with potentially stronger capabilities for accurately evaluating students’ clinical judgment skills before they receive their license to practice.
These new item types are currently included in an optional section of the existing NCLEX-RN for the purpose of collecting functionality data. This special research section does not count as part of the NCLEX score.
NCSBN has identified June 2019 as the deadline for a decision on whether to move forward on changes to the NCLEX-RN.
A decision to move forward would be followed by an extended period of item development, testing, and refinement before new item types appear on the published NCLEX-RN.
The NCLEX-PN® is not currently included in the scope of these changes.
Our NCLEX advisory board members are providing guidance and direction related to our NCLEX products, so they are up to date with the most accurate and reliable content.
